It all began when a supportive teacher asked me
to give a speech for my graduating class.
I said yes, but was really thinking
I'll choke, sweat & stammer.
Instead... I wrote, memorized, and prepared.
When the moment finally came, I stepped out front.
The whole room went black. Or, so it seemed.
I could hear my voice, but I couldn't see a thing.
Fearless, I forged ahead and before I knew it I was done.
I could see people smiling, clapping, and me?
Somehow I made it through.
Someone believed in me. Just a little bit more in me.
Because of that, my life has never been the same.
You’ve come this far, so if you're willing to come a little further
I'll take a moment to share with you what I do.
